What did you do with your Trials Bike today?

I'll admit, I stole this thread idea from a Toyota Land Cruiser forum that I belong to. But it's a cool idea.

So what did you do with your Trials Bike today? Maintenance? Compete? Overhaul? Restore? Nothing? Post it here!



I'll start off. I dragged out my old 314 Montesa to get it ready for Trials Camping Silliness next year, and decided that the destroyed LH bar switch (that controlled the long-gone lighting system) had to go.




Yeah, I know the hillbillied choke lever is hideous. Gimmie time....





After only 27 minutes of wrestling, the lighting wiring harness was freed from the 314...




I did discover that I had a new 314 clutch cable hidden with some new Aprilla Climber cables I had lying around.....




The 'Prilla cables seem to match the 314 cables exactly. Hmmmm....I may have to replace the throttle and clutch cables with these. I mean after all, it's SO much easier to come up with Aprilla cables than Montesa cables....


The finished product.




I just noticed that the bars are bent. I'll deal with that next week.



After removing the radiator scoop to get access to the cables and wiring, I am now wondering if I should put it back on or go with the "stripped" look. What do you all think??
